With an extra cubic meter of storage space available, this high-roof variant of the hugely popular Mercedes Sprinter is ideal for carrying larger loads. At a maximum of 2720mm high compared to 2435mm for the standard model, the van is still able to negotiate the vast majority of bridges, obstacles and multi-storey car parks without difficulty.
The comfortable and spacious cabin has plenty of room for three adults and comes with a number of cup holders and storage nooks to save you putting all your little bits and pieces in the side pockets where they are all too easily lost or damaged.
Mercedes-Benz vans are admired, as much for their car-like handling as for the tank-like solidity of their construction so it’s really no surprise that safety has been a high priority for the Sprinter’s designers. Anti-lock brakes, emergency braking assist and advanced electronic stability control are all supplied as standard, no-cost options across the range.
While many vehicles in this sector of the market feature stability control, the system fitted to the Sprinter is one of the most advanced around. By constantly measuring the centre of gravity and speed of the vehicle, it can help you to stop in the shortest possible time, no matter how uneven or heavy your load. The stability control can also help control a trailer that starts to swerve due to a high crosswind as it is being towed along.
With a long wheelbase, this van has a maximum load length of 4300mm and can tow a payload of up to 2750kgs. It 2.1 litre diesel engine produces 129bhp which is more than adequate for most tasks. The basic model is supplied with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Both automatic transmission and 4x4 drive are optional extras on some variants. The combined fuel economy figure for this model is 33.2 mpg while carbon dioxide emissions are 222 g/km.
If your van is one of the most important tools that you use in the course of your business, the Sprinter is a competent, comfortable and easy-to-drive choice that will perform admirably for many years to come.
